Happy 2012!

To celebrate the New Year, I’ve uploaded my blog’s new look! Many thanks to the artistry of Yellow Heart Art’s Leonora! I wanted the blog to have a whimsical, nerdy style, and I think she nailed it.

And along with the new look, a vision for a new year with The Nerdy Sewist.

Of course, I’ll continue to write about learning to sew and the “Beginner’s Mind.” Besides sewing, expect a lot about embroidery – because I’m going to teach an embroidery class at Fabric Bliss and hope to encourage more enthusiasm for contemporary embroidery. There will be a new, regular feature on the blog, a review of my new sewing machine, the Brother CS6000i.

And, last but not least, I plan to take the “nerdy” theme to the limit – and define for you all what it really means to be a “nerdy sewist.”

I hope you’ll join me for the ride — read, share, chime in!
